CAPE TOWN -- Helping to overcome the “Access in Africa” challenge, Bluwan, a provider of carrier-grade multi-gigabit wireless solutions, announced today that it has been selected by Somcable, Somaliland’s largest integrated communications solutions provider, to deliver high capacity broadband access across the Horn of Africa, in a contract worth upwards of three million dollars. The solution will be delivered and integrated by Globecomm Systems, a leading global provider of managed network communication solutions, headquartered in New York.

This system provides next generation last mile connectivity, leveraging Somcable’s multi-million dollar investment in its core fibre optic network. Bluwan’s Fibre Through The Air (FTTA) Access solution capitalises on this substantial investment to deliver fibre-like capacity of up to 8 Gbps to wireless broadband end-users. Many emerging countries have been faced with a confusing plethora of technologies that all promise to increase internet connectivity and ease access to the knowledge economy. Bluwan is helping to overcome what has become known as the “access in Africa” challenge by simplifying connectivity options and reducing deployment costs with its flexible, high speed and high capacity wireless access solution.
